Facebook free Wi-Fi calling coming to BlackBerry?

Just in case you're not up on all things iOS and Facebook, Facebook recently updated their Facebook Messenger for iPhone app. The update -- in the U.S. and Canada -- now allows you to place Skype-like audio calls over Wi-Fi to any of your friends who also happen to be in the U.S. or Canada. According to a report coming from the BBC, the functionality will also be expanded to include the BlackBerry and Android platforms as well.
Facebook said it was working on adding the feature to its Messenger app for Android and BlackBerry users. The official said Facebook was expected to roll out the feature in its Messenger app for other operating systems and expand it overseas.
Looing at the situation, it would make sense for Facebook to roll the feature out to all available platforms but when it comes to BlackBerry, there was no clarification if they meant all BlackBerry devices or only newer ones running BlackBerry 10. Guess we'll have to wait and see. If anything though, BBM Voice has proven that it can be done.
